Not great, show and very audience- heavy recording.
Reviewer: Alpine7784 - - February 12, 2012
Subject: One of the finest of the 1980s.
Everything about this night is good: Jim Wise's excellent audience recording, the song selection, and the energy level are all well, well above an average night. For me, though, the part that put is completely into the Otherworldly category is Drums > Space > the Other One. Billy Cobham does indeed join the drummers in the center of The Beast for this night, and the results are... well, honestly, the English language falls short in its ability to describe how good this is. It's my favorite Other One ever.

There is video of the Truckin > Drums > Space > Other One sequence from this night that was part of a Showtime special called "An Evening With The Grateful Dead." I have a copy of it on a very worn-out VHS tape. Why it wasn't released as part of the Dead Ahead DVD release's bonus footage, I have no idea. Somebody out there must have a better copy of it than me. It is exquisite to behold.... Jerry is smiling, happy, and so into The Other One that he's walking in place in rhythm to the music. To see him so animated and into it is very special.

Somebody release the video footage! Until then, get this audience recording and check out The Other One. This show flat-out rocks, people.

Subject: I also love this show
I was at this show crazy week. Went to 4 of the 8 shows. Can't get into the next/last night.

Billy Cobham also plays on The Other One. I saw it first hand. Loved this run. The 1st set is great.

Reviewer: wspsatisfied - - June 8, 2010
Subject: My favorite Dead Show
I am surprised to see so few downloads of this show and NO reviews?!?!

This IS MY FAVORITE DEAD SHOW! It has a great setlist, beautiful sound, some acoustic, some electric, some space, and an all around awesome recording.

The Lost Sailor> St. of Circumstance is the best recording I have. Althea, Alabama Getaway, Promised Land, Shakedown, Other One, Wharf Rat...awesome show.

I highly recommend this show!
